MY STAR letterpress book


SKU: MY STAR letterpress book Categories: ,


MY STAR was a collaborative effort. Peter Schumann made the masonite cuts in 1977. They were printed on fabric, painted and made into flags for the Bread and Puppet Theater show, AVE MARIS STELLA. The cuts were used again in B&P’s 1995 Star Calendar. Five years later, in the summer of 2000, puppeteers and interns cut up the left-over calendars for this book. Peter Schumann wrote the text. Claire Van Vliet designed the binding. Stinehauer Press donated the paper. Elka Schumann and Lila Winstead designed and printed the book on the SP 15 Vandercook Press which was donated to B&P in the early 1980’s by the Lyndonville Teen Center. Maria Schumann glued in the pictures. The work took place in the B&P print shop built by Jack Sumberg. We printed 110 copies in 2001. 14 pages, dimensions of book: 11.25″x9.5″
